Back in July, Chevrolet announced that it was starting the Corvette Engine Build Experience. Customers who would order a Z06 or ZR1 could pay an additional $5,800 to head for Wixom, Michigan and build the engine that would go into their own car. This is made possible thanks to the engines going into these ‘Vettes being hand-built by technicians.

Todd Schnitt, a radio host for both the MJ Morning Show in Tampa, Florida and the Schnitt Show on XM Radio, will be the first to get his hands dirty and personal with the engine that’s going in his fifth Corvette, a Cyber-Grey ZR1.

In a statement, Schnitt said he was instantly sold on the idea when the dealer mentioned the program, and now he can’t wait to do the “ultimate personalization to [his] car.”

Schnitt is a good example of the type of person this program is created for. His daily driver is a 2009 CTS-V equipped with a six-speed manual. He’s also already done two other Corvette programs that included a driving school with his 2009 ZR1 and taking delivery at the National Corvette Museum.

He’s already had two other cyber-grey ZR1s, but this one will probably be his favorite and worth holding on to.
